I tend to be long-winded, so I'm going to try and keep it simple so that you guys can voice your opinions "by the numbers." I'm a recent college graduate who is looking to buy a small truck (obviously a Ranger.) I just went to the dealership today and looked over the truck and it all sounds good to me, but it never hurts to have some additional (and expert, I might add) opinions. So, you can find info/pics of the Ranger here
and the rest of the deal outlined below.
2000 Dodge Durango 4x4
4.7L V8 Magnum
2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4
Extended cab (4-door)
Basically the deal breaks down like this: $8,650 for the Ranger, minus $3,000 for my trade-in, plus tax, tags, title, etc....Bottom line is $6,512 out the door.
Good deal? Bad deal?
NADA Retail Value: $8,225
P.S.- A couple questions about the Ranger. First, when you try to unlock the doors with the key, it sticks for the first couples tries, but works after that. Of course, he says this is common with Fords but is this a cause for concern? Second, the dome light is missing the cover, who know why, but are those things relatively easy to get ahold of and replace?
